Arkansas might be increasing highway speed limits

http://www.newson6.com/story/3494456...state-highways

The Arkansas House has approved a bill directing the state Highway Commission to raise the speed limit on controlled-access highways to 75 mph.



The current limit is 70 mph. Trucks would have to operate at speeds 5 mph less than that of automobiles.


On other roads, the maximum speed limit would climb from 60 mph to 65 mph, if engineers determine the speed can be raised safely.


so, looks like DaveO430 might be able to "get there faster" now

My pace is my pace, changing the speed limit won't change that. I usually run +5 anyway so if they do raise it I'll probably just run the limit.
And besides that 5mph faster doesn't gain much time unless it's a long trip.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I see so many folks who just can't follow the pace, they have to be "first in the line" and I stop right behind them at all the traffic lights, or even on the interstate highways I see them pass me again, often two or three times if we are on a long trip.

If you use a GPS and have it set to show you Arrival Time, it quickly becomes obvious that it is not worth risking a Speeding Ticket because it is very difficult to shave off more than 5 or 10 minutes over a 300 mile or longer trip.

I have driven SEVERAL times back and forth from western Virginia to the Pacific coast. I have driven by myself and just "jammed" to make good time, 42 hours driving time. I did it on my BMW motorcycle, 42 hours driving time. I did it in my 33ft RV, 42 hours driving time! I did it in a 26ft Penske moving truck, 42 hours driving time. Guess it's 42 hours driving time!
